[video clip] >> this is the first parish church in brunswick, maine. it is significant to the story of a uncle tom's cabin. in many ways, the story began here. it is here in pew #23 that harriet beecher stowe, by her account, saw the vision of uncle tom being whipped to to death. he is the title character, the hero of her 1852 novel," uncle tom's cabin." the story is that there is -- there was a slave, a good slave, sold by his first kind owner, mr. shelby, and he sold him to pay debts on his plantation through a series of misadventures, you might say, he ends up in the

on the political trail than it was about getting answers. it kind of seemed a little bit more like "l.a. law" than it did a hearing, an investigation, but i do think there were important things that came out yesterday. namely, eric nordstrom, the top u.s. security official in libya months before the attack had asked the state department for additional security. those requests were denied. and the state department official who actually handled those requests, charlene lamb, said that she did. and i think another thing that came out that was kind of interesting is that even as the republicans were charging that there wasn't enough security at the post, democrats did make an interesting point that under the house-controlled congress, there was, under republican controlled congress, sorry, there was a lot of budget cuts in the state department and embassy security. >> why she -- glad you brought that up. yesterday, serious accusations about not having enough assets and resources in place to protect our people. soledad o'brien asked right here on cnn, didn't you vote to cut the funding for embassy secu
